“If you believe in literature...then you believe that some of these books have the power to transform people and the way they see the world.” Danny Schaffer, a member of the Books Through Bars volunteer collective, which matches and sends requested books to incarcerated people, talks about the importance of access to knowledge, history, and literature in the prison system.

"You absolutely can tell a great story on the spot." This short film by Mark Cersosimo follows fiction writer C. D. Hermelin on his journey to becoming "The Roving Typist." After finding an old Royal Safari typewriter at a yard sale, Hermelin decided to set up shop in parks around New York City and type stories for strangers. Freebird Books serves as one of the backdrops in the film.
